MOBY CLIT is a 60-minute solo performance which reworks, subverts, and stitches together foundational stories from the American consciousness, creating a piece which foregrounds identity and whiteness. Beginning with the source texts of Moby Dick, The Great Gatsby, Annie, and The Wizard of Oz, these stories are woven together to create a new American foundational myth which calls the original myths into question. At the center of this is America’s foundation on race relations, ignoring racial problems, and its obsession with whiteness.
